This stuff works:
Treating raw meat and poultry with irradiation at the slaughter plant could eliminate bacteria commonly found on raw meat and raw poultry, such as E. coli O157:H7, Salmonella, and Campylobacter. These organisms currently cause millions of infections and thousands of hospitalizations in the United States every year. Irradiating prepared ready-to-eat meats like hot dogs and deli meats, could eliminate the risk of Listeria from such foods. Irradiation could also eliminate parasites like Cyclospora and bacteria like Shigella and Salmonella from fresh produce. The potential benefit is also great for those dry foods that might be stored for long times and transported over great distances, such as spices and grains. Animal feeds are often contaminated with bacteria like Salmonella. Irradiation of animal feeds could prevent the spread of Salmonella and other pathogens to livestock through feeds.
Of course, the LeftyLoons hear the word "irradiation" and go all wacko...figuring their food may grow arms and legs or something...
But it works.

I have no problem with that at all.
Question: don't know how else to post on your blog, but when reading your bio, you refer to Calvin? Calvin who? The comic strip - I loved that one, was sorry to see it go.
thanks, I'll look for your reply,
Do they sell that stuff at Whole Foods?
Finally you start to make some sense. Irradiation is absolutely harmless and would also prevent ecoli in meat products. It's the perfect solution.
Cecelia, man, I like that name, and the Simon and Garfunkel song, but, I think he means John Calvin, or maybe it's Calvin and Hobbes. With Dad, you can never be sure.
Calvin/Hobbes is the one. Billiam knows that John Calvin is not on my list of "good guys..."
But with Billiam, you can never be sure.
BTW, my chilluns bought me the complete, hardbound "Calvin & Hobbes" for Christmas last year.
If you look hard enough, you'll see Hobbes is a very sophisticated theologian...
